Subject: Near the middle of Buchanan's contract with AIP
Contrary to what many think, Larry Buchanan DID have the rights to do these color made for TV remakes. He signed a deal with AIP to make films tyhe studio owned the rights to. While Corman may have made the original films for In the Year 2889 and Zontar, AIP owned them and they wanted someone to at least make color updates for TV. Who better than the man who works with almost no budget Larry Buchanan.

This movie's got a little more star power than the others made by Buchanan. Instead of just John Agar, we get John Agar and Francine York who plays the mad scientist's wife.

The movie is slow going which wouldn't be such a problem if the plot were more interesting. Much of it looks to be shot on location which is impressive.

The usual issues found in Buchanan's films are here. Bad attempts at day for night being the most obvious. Other issues is fairly flat acting.

You'll recognize MANY Buchanan regulars in this as well. They're easy to spot from the other flicks. 3 stars because Buchanan really made his movies on the fly and they are a product of the times.

Subject: B Monster Flick - if you like them, watch this one
A nice diversion. Nothing believable here but the plot is different even if the script is weak and acting wooden for the most part. Nice location shots, one of the goofiest looking monsters ever, right up there with the Eye Creatures. Watch for the edge of the mask on the back of the neck of the actor at the climax. The third star is for originality in the plot.

This is another film by the great Larry Buchanan, who re-used a lot of his monster suits in a number of his films.
Still waiting for a copy of The Loch Ness Horror to surface somewhere now.

I remember uploading this about a year ago and found out recently it was taken for some reason. I've tried to find out why, but to this day the whys and wherefores are still a mystery. That being said, there have been not one but two people who've been kind enough to re-upload this film. I checked out both uploads and this file was the better quality. It's even better than the one I had up. A special thank you to Mystic for putting this up. Since it's better than my copy, I'll be adding this to my collection.
